Create and support one-to-one mentoring relationships that ignite the power and promise of youth.
What we do:
We are working to ensure every child in WNC has an enjoyable, long-term relationship with a caring adult who believes in them and sees their potential. We select and match mentors with children facing adversity and provide ongoing activities, training and support services for both families and volunteers to foster a successful match relationship and a lasting connection.
When matched with their Big, Littles gain a role model, a friend and access to new experiences through which they build higher aspirations for their lives. These relationships provide them with the support they need to achieve academic improvement, growth in self-confidence and development of life skills, and reward mentors with the experience of being an integral part of that young person’s success.
In nearly four decades, we have served over 14,000 children and believe that in each on there is a special spark that can lead them to become positive, productive citizens of our community and the world.
